ABSTRACT Let fl(G) be the domination number of a graph G, and let G \Theta H be thedirect product of graphs G and H . It is shown that for any k 0 there existsa graph G such that fl(G \Theta G) fl(G)

    ABSTRACT: Let $G_1$ and $G_2$ be two undirected nontrivial graphs. The Kronecker product of $G_1$ and $G_2$ denoted by $G_1\otimes G_2$ with vertex set $V(G_1)\times V(G_2)$, two vertices $x_1x_2$ and $y_1y_2$ are adjacent if and only if $(x_1,y_1)\in E(G_1)$ and $(x_2,y_2)\in E(G_2)$. This paper presents a formula for computing the diameter of $G_1\otimes G_2$ by means of the diameters and primitive exponents of factor graphs.

    ABSTRACT: This paper first presents some earlier results on k-dominating sets of Cartesian products and cardinal products of two paths, and then new results on k-dominating sets of a strong product and an equivalent product of two paths (a k-domination number of a strong and an equivalent product of Pm × Pn for arbitrary m and n).

    ABSTRACT: A sharp lower bound for the domination number and the total domination number of the direct product of finitely many complete graphs is given: γ(×i=1tKni)≥t+1,t≥3. Sharpness is established in the case when the factors are large enough in comparison to the number of factors. The main result gives a lower bound for the domination (and the total domination) number of the direct product of two arbitrary graphs: γ(G×H)≥γ(G)+γ(H)−1γ(G×H)≥γ(G)+γ(H)−1. Infinite families of graphs that attain the bound are presented. For these graphs it also holds that γt(G×H)=γ(G)+γ(H)−1γt(G×H)=γ(G)+γ(H)−1. Some additional parallels with the total domination number are made.
